Baskerville Wayzgoose Events

Baskerville Wayzgoose

Please join us on Saturday 1st April for the inaugural Baskerville Wayzgoose. This marks an exciting stage in a new venture that will see Baskerville Hall become a year-round celebration of books.

A Wayzgoose is an annual gathering of printers that dates back to medieval times. We are thrilled that a vast collection of early printing presses will have a permanent home at Baskerville Hall and be in daily working use. Apprenticeships, courses, workshops will be offered.

The Wayzgoose will include a Project Lab for The Story of Books. We hope you will be able to join us to find out more about the plans, share ideas, and be part of the story.

Baskerville Wayzgoose Fair, Saturday 1st April, 10am-3pm, at Baskerville Hall (Clyro Court) with exhibitions, demonstrations, table top stalls and activities for all ages. Free Entry.

THE STORY OF BOOKS where stories are told and books are made The Story of Books is developing plans for the first working museum dedicated to all aspects of books. The project is led by creative entrepreneur, Emma Balch. The Story of Books will have a permanent, physical HQ at Baskerville Hall near Hay-on-Wye. The Story of Books is also creating a series of collaborative and inclusive experiences – exhibitions, events, tours, digital projects and curated spaces – around the globe.
